And this is the vegetable garden today:
What a difference, right?
Here’s a pretty marigold and a pumpkin plant, newly planted six weeks ago:
Earlier this week, we had gorgeous pumpkin blossoms popping up among the large pumpkin leaves:

This is our first time planting pumpkins, and I can’t wait to see how many pumpkins we get. I’ll be happy with just a few big ones!

There’s a bunny in our yard – he comes to visit every day – and we have watched him ignore the vegetable bed. All of our vegetables are doing great, with lots of bees buzzing around pollinating the blossoms. So far, so good!
I love how pretty they look against all of the green plants. And I love even more how they seem to be helping out the veggies too!
